Hey, what are the prizes for this competition? 💰:wizard:

 

I need some motivation! 💰:bling:

 

BTW, I didn't see anything in the rules about "Russian Influence/Interference"! This "Competition"sounds kinda of "fishy" to me. 👀

I believe Aquarium Masters is who made the DeepBlue tanks, at least the smaller ones

I thought deep blue was just smug about their awesomeness but I guess the black plastic rim has aquarium masters embossed into it because someone else made it!

Prizes will be announced this Saturday, March 30th, along with the secret item that must be photographed inside the dry competition tank. They're pretty great!

Nope, sorry, I ruled them out for this one. HOB filters only, or no filter 🙂

Does anybody think the flow from a Nero 5 or MP40 will be sufficient to make it to the other side of one of these tanks?

@Christopher Marks

Wait, so are internal filters fine if air driven? like a small sponge filter?

Ugh the light I am planning to use won’t work on a rimmed tank.  If we’re going old school I may have to find some damsels to toss in lol

New to saltwater tanks but I’d like to try this competition, looks like fun!

 

Quick question before I hit up petco tomorrow, does anyone know which aqua clear filter fits the guidelines of .5 gallon? Would the 70 be to big?
